I hope you are all safe at home during this snow storm. I wanted to thank you all for coming out to our meetup Tuesday night. I think the response for the Digital Arts Experience was unanimous. Everyone seemed to love the bright, open space. A special thank you to the DAE for hosting us and a special thank you to our speaker, Tom Morel for providing such an informative presentation. He sent me the files from his presentation and I have posted them on the Meetup.com site. To find them, simply look under the More tab drop down and go to Files.
1) 2/18/14 WordPress NYC:
Some of you may know DK Smith. He is one of our members who has done some amazing presentations for us in the past. He is doing a live clean-up of a hacked website next Tuesday at the WPNYC meetup, * http://www.meetup.com/WordPressNYC/events/164904972/
It's a rare learning opportunity. The hacked website is one of his honeypots (not a client site), so he can work on it publicly.
2) 5/10/14 WordCamp CT
Please mark your calendars for this incredible experience. If you're not familiar with WordCamps, they are like a WordPress Meetup on steroids. A full day of classes from top WordPress experts for just $20. You'll get a great t-shirt and lunch included for that price, so how can you go wrong? Right now we are looking for volunteers to help us make this great day possible as well as speaker applications. If you are interested, or know someone who could help us make this a great day, please find out more at http://2014.connecticut.wordcamp.org/
3) Next Meetup
We are planning a great meetup that will answer all your questions on best hosting practices for WordPress sites, so please plan to join us next month. We'll have another email going out soon confirming the details.
Again, thank you all for making this such an awesome group and we look forward to seeing you next month.
